The coding workshop future-proofing budding Indigenous entrepreneurs

Twenty Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students have learnt valuable tech skills to prepare them to launch their careers, or even their own future businesses.

Before today, Kimberley Wren had often thought about a career in the tech industry, but never thought she was cut out for it. 

But following an entrepreneurship and coding workshop in Brisbane, the 15-year-old has changed her mindset.

"I’ve never really thought I had the right skills for it, but now I see that I can build my skills easily," she tells NITV News. 

Kimberley was one of 20 students from Capalaba State College who took part in the workshop, which involved public speaking and problem solving activities designed to boost students' confidence and communication skills.
